There are two main parts to lamps that can be decorative and they are the base and the lampshade. Although you can have both very decorative, it is better to have one that is plain and the other striking. This will have the most effect on your decorative table lamps and changing the color of the bulb can change the whole feeling in the room altogether. You may be tempted to buy very large table lamps; however, you have to imagine what they will look like on the table they are to be placed on. If they will dwarf the table, you might be better with smaller ones. You need to consider where the lamps are to be put before choosing.
Another consideration will be how the lamp will be used. If you are choosing a floor lamp to add light to a corner where you will be doing a lot of reading, an arched lamp would be a better investment for this purpose than a clamp lamp might be. On the other hand, if you want a contemporary floor lamp to add ambiance to your dining room then you might want to choose a floor lamp such as a Sheffield floor lamp that gives off a soft glow rather than a bright light. Keep in mind that lighting can be used to create atmosphere as well as add light to darkened corner. Choosing a contemporary floor lamp like a Medusa lamp with several colorful shades can give the feel a large flower in an empty corner of a room and draw attention away from less attractive areas.
Estate sales often produce some of the most horrific lamps you can imagine, and also some of the most interesting. I'm a big antiquer myself and spend a lot of time looking over some of the strangest lighting options known to man. Like the "legs" lamp in A Christmas Story these lamps can get pretty off the way. However, every so often you run across that beauty that you can't pass up.
